Will Stedman.

"I believe in a relaxed, fun and creative approach to photographing someone’s big day! To me, it’s a huge honour and is not something I take lightly! I like to have fun with every single couple and as a wedding photographer, I have worked at some of the UK’s most exclusive wedding venues such as Kensington Palace, Greenwich Naval College and at several of Cambridge University Colleges to name a few! I also love to travel and pride myself in being a destination wedding photographer, having recently shot in St Lucia in the Caribbean".

Alongside my wedding works, I’m also a commercial photographer having worked for various large companies including Wagammama, Sony, Sony Europe, Sony Imaging, Talkback Thames and Freemantle media photographing everything from large scale advertisements to headshots of staff.

My style is best described as contemporary, vibrant and contrasting, with a flair of reportage. I’m always trying hard to stay current and bring new techniques into the mix".

Will's seminar is based around his switch from DSLR to Sony mirrorless with live portrait demonstrations of lighting effects with Sony cameras.

All camera users welcome.

Esther Ling

Esther Ling specialises in food photography (with some incredible results).

Esther believes in simplicity and not over complicating things, she works where possible on both her food and wedding photography with available light and wide open apertures, a definite lover of shallow depths of field.

She will talk about how she approaches her shoots and her move from being a DSLR user to Panasonic Lumix mirrorless kit along with showing her "in camera bag" essentials.

Esther will also show how the two totally different genres are brought together by shooting in the same style and putting her own look onto the images."
